Apple Digital Campus
The Apple MacBooks at Oklahoma Christian provide several unique technological options that enhance the university's mobile learning goals and allow it to better meet the educational needs of the students.
Whether you're an Apple fanatic or a die-hard Windows user, Oklahoma Christian's Macbook program caters to your needs. The MacBooks come with both Apple's Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and Microsoft's Windows 7 operating systems. The flexibility to experience both environments enables you better preparation to enter the business landscape of tomorrow.
Our Wi-Fi Certified™ wireless network has continued to grow with the increased demand of mobile devices and applications including video
streaming technologies like iTunes, YouTube, and Netflix. With over 275 wireless access points and growing, Oklahoma Christian is continuing to adapt to the bandwidth needs of a truly wireless campus.
Oklahoma Christian's university owned laptop program allows the University to provide students with access to software at a significantly reduced cost, giving students access to software that they would have to on their own at other institutions. The University manages over 75 software titles for student access from vendors like Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, Autodesk, IBM, and many more.
We have over one hundred laser printers located throughout the campus, including all academic buildings and housing areas. Color laser printing and copy systems are also available in the Beam Library.
The Office of Information Technology's Support Central team provides support services for the student laptop program. This includes on-site certified hardware repair as well as software support. The Support Central Apple Hardware Team has won Apple's Commitment to Excellence award for the last 10 consecutive quarters. Supporting one hardware platform enables Oklahoma Christian to provide a more efficient and highly customized level of support than other universities are able to offer.
The technology staff is not only familiar with the hardware but also the software and related drivers. This allows for most software issues to be addressed immediately and most hardware repairs to be completed within two business days. Loaner laptops are available for student use while their machines are in for repair.
